realistic university choice?

    • Thread Starter

    I want to know that if my university choice were a realist one. I study psychology , religious studies and economics in my As however I only sit for religious studies and economics which I got two A. I am transferring to another school and planning to drop psychology and would do an one year intensive course on philosophy instead. My predicted grade would be A*AA or A*A*A, I am planning to apply to oxford for PPE and philosophy for warwick, ucl, Durham.

    Is it a realist university choice? as my previous IB grades are **** back in china, plus my subject choice are quite narrow (Philosophy and religious studies have similar content), is there a chance for me to apply to oxford for PPE??

    They are good choices, but be sure to pick insurance choices that you feel comfortable with.
